Not too long ago, Karthi shared the good news about his second child's birth. Calling it a life-changing experience, the actor revealed that his wife Ranjini Chinnaswamy and he have welcomed a baby boy.
Now, adding another joyful moment to their lives by naming their baby Kandhan, a synonym with Lord Murugan (also called Karthikeyan), the Paiyaa star has taken to social media to share a heartfelt message for the little one. The actor wrote the note on March 17 in Tamil, which loosely translates to, "Dear... Mom, sister and I are very fondly naming you Kandhan. May your arrival bring sweetness to our family. Sincerely, Dad."

அம்மாவும், அக்காவும், நானும் உனக்கு மிக ஆசையாக "கந்தன்" என்று பெயர் சூட்டி இருக்கிறோம். உன் வருகையால், நம் சுற்றம் மேலும் இனிமையாகட்டும்.
Notably, the name Kandhan has a strong connect with the actor's name Karthi, which is also derived from Karthikeyan. Well, along with the message, the actor also shared a cute picture of his son's hand that indeed garnered the attention of the netizens, with many finding it adorable. Fans and followers of Karthi have also been congratulating the actor in this regard. For the unversed, the actor also has a 9-year-old daughter Umayaal.
